    [November Tests 2016 EOYT] England vs. South Africa (12/11/2016)

    Shame about Rokko, he is Awsome would take Christian wade over Yarde, I know his defence has been questionable in the past but he is probably the best attacking threat we have, would be great to have him as a hell Mary option if things are not looking to good around 65 - 70 minutes.

    June International Test: Australia vs. England [2nd Test] (18/06/2016)

    Would be great to see, however NZ are still probably the best team in the world, the margin is probably considerably less than it was during the World Cup, I don't think any other nation has anywhere near the squad depth NZ do though.

    June International Test: Australia vs. England [2nd Test] (18/06/2016)

    Yeah stone walled in the first game and much of the second then SA broke down the doors and Ireland simply couldn't contain it, Aus did not do this to England more do I believe they would let SA do it to them. Aus didn't lack those things for the first 20 in the first test, then the boys found...

    June International Test: Australia vs. England [2nd Test] (18/06/2016)

    Too his credit he does appear to have curbed and chanelled his aggression, but I'm defiantly with you, I always have a horrible feeling that under certain circumstances one of his episodes could be triggered!

    June International Test: Australia vs. England [2nd Test] (18/06/2016)

    Agree to a point but even allowing for the World Cup sham, England fell just short of multiple six nations titles not only did they take the title but got the grand slam too. I don't think prior to the World Cup they would have had the belief to come back from the Aus hammering we were under in...

    June International Test: Australia vs. England [2nd Test] (18/06/2016)

    That's exactly the point i was trying to make, above all there just seems to be an unwavering belief within the team we haven't seen, perhaps the vice captancies EJ has put in place was a stroke of genius, I have little doubt the defensive structure is Gustards brain child, in order for it to be...

    June International Test: Australia vs. England [2nd Test] (18/06/2016)

    England's recent performances are a little odd, Eddie really hasn't changed a lot of the team personnel wise from what SL put in place, but has some how managed to get the very best out of under performing players Haskell and Robshaw to mention a few, I said it before and was pleasantly suprised...

    June International Test: South Africa vs. Ireland [1st Test] (11/06/2016)

    Just watched the replay back he moves the ball on the floor more than once, add to that Mike is being moved backwards it's hardly comparable... No one is saying anyone deserves to loose an eye.

    June International Test: South Africa vs. Ireland [1st Test] (11/06/2016)

    It did seem a little harsh at first but bottom line is it was slightly late and he knocked the guy out, that has to be sanctioned, brining up the whole Brown incident is utterly ridiculous, brown was entitled to compete for the ball in the ruck, if Murray wasn't cheating messing with the ball on...

    Australia vs England - 3 Tests - June 2016

    I see, if he offers that much in attack it would be nice to have him as an option if the situation requires a roll of the dice, kind of like the World Cup really in the final 20 against Australia, the game was already lost kind of do or die situation.

    Can any one explain why Christian Wade seems to be over looked for the main team, to me he appears to have that flair the backs often lack.

    NZ vs Wales - June 2016

    Unless Wales pull out a miracle based on the last game against England the chances of them winning are about as high as the ankle socks of a particularly small beetle.

    Simply put he is simply not of international quality, Te'o looks interesting played league along side Sam Burgess...

    Australia vs England - 3 Tests - June 2016

    Not sure how good Devoto is but a friend of mine reckion he's pretty handy at 10 the fact the he didn't play there for bath is is a slight injustice and could be seen as biased due to the management rather than ability, certainly not proven at international but maybe an option.

    Is Nowell good under the high ball? Not convinced he has the gas but certainly a fantastic player

    Australia vs England - 3 Tests - June 2016

    Great assessment not sure about FH, Faz is the only one with consistent form this season. Think Brown attracts some slightly unfair attention he has been solid ok not set the world a light but hasn't done an awful lot wrong only potential replacement I would say is Watson but think Bath players...

    No 10 has to be the biggest concern.

    Australia vs England - 3 Tests - June 2016

    The work rate to be where, he is in the line with a large chunk of the England team, granted he did well to read it but come on it had so much air on it

    Australia vs England - 3 Tests - June 2016

    Firstly they are not equal form based on individual performances throughout the season and club achievements Daly is miles ahead that's not even debatable is just a fact. Secondly you can have two players competing for the same possession giving Daly some game time may well prove to bring out...

    Australia vs England - 3 Tests - June 2016

    He defiantly has the potential, I don't really understand what it IS JJ has done so wonderful in recent times, additionally England currently have to many backs from a failing bath team, I think the only reason we are even talking in a positive light is the lack of quality currently in the NH...
